what do you know? >> still no motive for this attack. the fbi stresses it's still early in their in fact. they still have a lot loose ends. that doesn't fit into the typical packaging if you will, the stockpile of weapons that went unused. the location of the attack, the 6-month-old child the couple left behind. while there are some consistencies with terrorism, the fbi says at this point there are no concrete links to an international terrorist group. >> finally, a face to put with the name tashfeen malik who police say along with her husband syed farook shot and killed 14 people and injured 21 more. >> the family just knew her as -- you know, she was caring. she was soft spoken, it was very basic information what they've seen of her. >> she was like a typical housewife. >> what authorities say she did wednesday was anything but typical. minutes before the ted deadly shooting rampage she pled
couple's allegiance to isis. that fbi investigation includes cell phones the couple tried to destroy but authorities are salvaging, plus communication. >> we have no indication these two are part of a larger group. >> counter terrorism analyst said an attack coordinated be an international terrorist outfit would have likely targeted a busier location. >> isis is very happy to take credit for this kind of attack but for them to say they planned this attack does not seem credible to me at this juncture. people in syria are not trying to shoot up community centers in the suburbs of california. >> there's never been any evidence that either of the two alleged shooters were aggressive, had extremist views. >> attorneys for farook's family says the family's shocked including farook's sister. >> no, there was nothing.

the council is the largest muslim civil rights and advocacy group in the united states. >> on the campaign trail presidential candidates not holding back their feelings about gun control after the mass shooting in california. >> shooting after shooting after shooting occurs in so- called gun-free zones. look, if you're a lunatic, ain't nothing better to have a bunch of targets you know are going to have unarmed. >> we need bomb control because these people were building bombs. we need terrorist control. >> part of that strategy, i'm just going to say this again, i've been talking about it for the last few days is to try to prevent terrorists from getting their hands on guns in our country. >> lawmakers yesterday blocked a bill that would have toughened existing background checks and prevented people on the no fly list from buying guns all for gop senators

day undetected. we got a copy of the e-mail. garrett's live outside the high school to talk about the changes meant to keep students safe. a lot of people in awe that this gun was able to get into the building in the first place. >> reporter: mpd detectives are still investigating how this teenage student was able to get a handgun, pass the metal detectors. tonight the school says they're not waiting for that investigation to be complete before deciding to step up their security measures. >> the discovery of a handgun in a student's backpack on tuesday alarmed students and parents alike at d. c.'s largest high school. >> this is not, you know, typical certainly for -- even for wilson, even though it's a big urban high school. >> a math classroom mpd officers arrested the juvenile male student who allegedly brought the gun and slipped it into another student's backpack. the school and the district immediately began a security review to address several key
